Frederick Mathias Alexander (1869-1955) developed his remarkable technique in response to vocal problems he experienced as an actor. The Alexander Technique, now in practice for over 100 years, serves performers of all sorts; and has been accepted by the scientific community, as well, as an effective method for reducing unnecessary muscular tension, thereby improving coordination and alleviating chronic pain.

Some well-known proponents of the Alexander Technique:
 

Actors: Juliette Binoche, John Cleese, James Earl Jones, Steve Martin, Hilary Swank, Robin Williams

 

Medical Professionals: Dr. Lucy Brown, neuroscientist, Professor Nikolaas Tinbergen (Nobel Prize for Physiology/Medicine, 1973), British Medical Journal study on back pain British Medical Journal study 2008

 

Musicians: Julie Andrews, Sting, Paul McCartney

 

Writers: Aldous Huxley, John Dewey, George Bernard Shaw

 
The Alexander Technique is included in the curriculum of noted institutions worldwide. Some of these include:
 

The American Conservatory Theater, The Juilliard School, Los Angeles Philharmonic Training Program, NYU School of the Arts, The Old Globe Theater, The Royal Academies of Music and Dramatic Arts, London, UCLA, and Yale Drama School
